For our Washington, DC vacation we chose this hotel because of the less expensive nightly rate compared to other lodging closer to the City. BE AWARE before booking here that although in the past they had a shuttle to the nearest Metro station (and you'll read about it in the reviews), they no longer offer that service. You can catch a bus in front of the hotel for a 15 minute ride to the Metro station, or it is a 35 minute walk to the Metro station, neither of which is ideal when the weather is bad. In addition, there are major highways that run through that area. We made it work but would choose a hotel closer to a Metro station next time we visit.
Having said that, we liked the hotel itself as it was very clean and felt safe. The rooms are up-to-date and everything works great including the small refrigerator and microwave in the room.
There are many choices of hot and cold foods for breakfast so we never went away hungry. It would be nice if breakfast went a little later than 9 a.m. because, coming from a western time zone, we had to get up VERY early (according to our bodies' clocks) to make it on time.
The employees were friendly and, were it not for the difficulty in getting around the area without a car, we would probably stay here again. less
